I agree 100% that all drivers get calls on the track that they may or may not deserve.  But a car spinning and getting their spot back or a car causing someone to spin and keeping their own spot is far different than a car actually leaving the track and maintaining position.  I have never seen a car leave the track before and get their spot back.  I have seen it offered once at Sunset - when another car had hard impact with the inside wall at Sunset, another driver with emergency medical training stopped to help, his car got too hot when he shut it down to help out, he left the track to get it cooled down and when he came back they offered him his spot back, but he elected not to take it.  So, while I have seen it offered once before, I have never actually seen it happen ever before.

Probably would have been on the hill complaining too Leigh had it been somone else.  We had planned on a 30/35 lap feature, not a 75, pretty tough to call that one

Probably right Glenn.  I understand what you are saying about the number of laps you were expecting to run and if you read fully what I wrote, I believe the chance to refuel/go pitside should have been offered to everyone at that point if the track wanted to keep things fair.   What if the race had have restarted and a lap later another car ran out of fuel, under green, and they had to leave the track.  Would they have stopped the race and allowed this person to refuel and come back to their position.  If it happened to you, it may well have happened to someone else afterward.  I am not saying that didn't deserve to win that race, I just don't agree with the officials call.  Apparently this is still a very touchy subject even after all these months.

Only suggestion I can make it...  If you're running at Barrie and it looks like rain, pack up the fuel cell, you may need it.

One thing I can say for them, they sure are determined to get the show in and not too often will they throw in the towel.  They make every effort to get the show done.

Prefer exhaust exit out the side.

As much as I think it was a bad call on Barrie's part, it has nothing to do with "Glenn getting away with something."  It was a call the track made, not something that Glenn "attempted" to get away with.  What a stupid comment.

I agree with you Glenn on packing the fuel cell.  My theory is if you are running 25 laps, put in enough for 60+.  You never know what is going to happen once you get out there.  It's all up in the air.

As far as calls, on or off the track go, I don't care what they are as long as they are consistent.  I think that is the only thing that a driver, fan or crew member can ask for.  Everyone gets calls they don't deserve sometimes and get away with things they shouldn't sometimes, as long as it is consistent.  Same goes for consistent tech.
